Baildon Trinity Athletic are celebrating after lifting the William Machell and Sons sponsored Wharfedale Sunday Cup for the first time at Pool on Tuesday.
They defeated their Wharfedale Triangle opponents comfortably, Tim Higman netted twice while man of the match Luke Hudson slotted home a penalty.
Mirtica Haram and an own goal rounded off their tally.
The Menston goal came from Ben Coward on an evening that belonged to a Trinity side who clearly enjoyed their succes.
In the semi-finals Baildon triumphed 7-2 over near neighbours Shipley Town.
Menston Town defeated Otley Town Sunday 2-1 in the other semi-final with goals from Carl Firth and Aidan Roberts.
The pitch at Pool was in excellent condition considering the recent bad weather and it was clear that a lot of hard work had gone in to preparing a surface fit for a final.
It was a credit to Pool’s Peter Wilkinson who was presented with the Wharfedale & District Football Association’s secretary of the year award by the association president Wilf Chatwin.
He previously won the accolade ten years ago and his latest award was both timely and well deserved.
Among the spectators watching the final was Guiseley striker Danny Forrest.
The Wharfedale Junior Cup final will be played on Bank Holiday Monday, May 7, at Rawdon Old Boys ground kicking-off at 11am.
This Resource Print Solutions sponsored final will be between Burley Trojans under-16s and Guiseley under-16 Whites.
Trojans won their way to the final with a crushing 10-0 away win at Horsforth St Margaret's Colts U-15s.
Scorers for Trojans were Tom Turner (3), Simon Wood (2), Jake Wilson (2), Patrick Connolly, Curtis
